Lakeville Elementary School is Named
A new elementary school is under construction in one of our premiere communities, Spirit of Brandtjen Farm (Lakeville) and now it has a name! Scheduled to open fall of 2017, the newest school in the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan district (ISD 196) will be called…drum roll please…East Lake Elementary.
With around 1,000 name suggestions submitted to the district, the name “East Lake Elementary” appeared numerous times. To those familiar with our Spirit of Brandtjen Farm community, you may know that East Lake is also the name of a large wetland in the neighborhood.
The new elementary school being built only adds to the unique allure of living in Spirit of Brandjten Farm (“Spirit”). The progressive master-plan development offers a rich sense of history and wealth of amenities. A restored barn, with original California redwood, stands as the community center or better known to residents as “The Barn”. The Barn offers a fitness center, full kitchen, gathering area with fireplace, game room and outdoor swimming pool. A second outdoor pool and pool house is set to be built near Eagleview Drive and 162nd Street.
The development was designed to maintain the character of the land. Spirit neighbors enjoy miles of walking trails, fire pits overlooking a pond, open green space as well as a playground, sand volleyball and a basketball court.
With a variety of homes plans and proximity to the airport, downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul, great health care providers, entertainment and grocery shopping (Hy-Vee is also located in Spirit), the neighborhood is ideal for families, empty nesters, retirees and single 20, 30, 40-somethings alike.
Don’t be shy, please peruse our home plan collections currently being offered in Spirit…and become our next neighbor (if you aren’t already!).
